AND watched: in theatre

Captain Fantasic (2016)
Director/Writer: Matt Ross
Starring: Viggo Mortensen
-Drama | imdb | my rating: 5

In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a father devoted to raising his six kids with a rigorous physical and intellectual education is forced to leave his paradise and enter the world, challenging his idea of what it means to be a parent.

=====> Loved the dynamic of this family and how they gelled. Makes you think about parenting styles and what we want of our kids.

Tickled (2016)
Director: David Farrier, Dylan Reeve
-Documentary | imdb | my rating: 5

Journalist David Farrier stumbles upon a mysterious tickling competition online. As he delves deeper he comes up against fierce resistance, but that doesnt stop him getting to the bottom of a story stranger than fiction.

=====> This starts out amusing and funny, but turns into something chilling.

AND binge watching: on HBO

Game of Thrones
tv series, season six
Creators: David Benioff, D.B. Weiss
Based on book by: George R.R. Martin
-Adventure, Drama, Fantasy | imdb | my rating: 5

While a civil war brews between several noble families in Westeros, the children of the former rulers of the land attempt to rise up to power. Meanwhile a forgotten race, bent on destruction, plans to return after thousands of years in the North.

=====> Through a generous friend, I am able to watch the sixth series via HBO. LOVING it!

Currently flipping through: from the library

Big Eyes
The Film, The Art
by Leah Gallo
-Art, Non-fiction
Amazon | Goodreads

=====> Also pictured above is the DVD which I plan on watching as well. It looks so small compared to the grand coffee table art book.
